ARR is back

Azhagiye – the latest mind haunt from the isai puyal.

It’s the song from “Kaatru veliyidai” movie by Mani Ratnam and I am pretty sure Rahman has something up his sleeve for Mani’s movies. Every single album in their combination from Roja,Bombay, Thiruda thiruda, Iruvar, Dil Se, Alaipayuthey, Kannathil muthamittal, Ayutha ezhuthu, Guru, Ravanan, Kadal and Ok Kanmani has some or all of the songs being chartbusters. The last three albums kind of diminishing the shine with only a few of them being table toppers. For purists, even those that didn’t win the public support, were of special note as they could argue over the technicalities of those songs. The success of Rahman was more attributed to the freshness in his tunes that became more complex in tune like an updated software with each release. He leaped off from the western influence sowed by Ilayaraja and grew leaps and bounds from that platform provided by Raja.

With the two singles released for “Kaatru Veliyidai” I guess (more of a hope) that the vintage Rahman is back. If “Vaan mazhai” is every bit your slow melody, literally chiming for the heroine, also by her may be, “Azhagiye” is your quintessential Rahman favorite, with its catchy choir and hummable simple tune with cute lyrics. Probably Rahman missed Vaali, the poet with his fingertips on current pulse of the audience, all the while as Vairamuthu, his usual partner in crime, resorts to copy pasting content from ancient literature to pass it off as movie lyrics. Vaali excelled in his word play and used to provide the “lyrical” relief for Vairamuthu’s heavy dose. With his tunes going more complex, Rahman was in dire need of someone who can mend the words to fit within his composition and with “Azhagiye” I guess he has unearthed the possible successor for Vaali in Karky, who happens to be vairamuthu’s son. Though he has mile long shoes to fill of the void left by Vaali, Karky seems to have the right ingredients to make it up quick. Be it the smooth flow of englishified tamil or tamilified English lyrics, with current mood of the public intertwined, all the while without falling out of the tune, that is a circus in itself which comes easily for Karky. One thing that Vaali used to do other than such transliteration stuff is to stun every now and then with pure tamil lyrics with its “Edhugai” and “Moanai” like “Kaadhalenum Thervezhuthi” from Kaadhalar dhinam movie.

Here goes the song lyrics. Pretty sure it would climb the charts and stay there when the video is released as well. Hope the Rahman-Ratnam combo churns out something special with the rest of the album and on those to come as well.

Isai Mannan Gilsu vaazhga vaazhga !!

Thanks you for the music tips. Being completely ignorant of contemporary Tamil film music, I need the tutelage of a maestro like Gilsu. I shall promptly make a beeline for YouTube.
